Themed team negotiation and trading
A fast moving and highly immersive pirate themed game that explores the skills of negotiation, information gathering, networking and understanding customer needs.
How It Works
Each team plays the crew of a pirate ship that arrives with a hull full of ‘booty’ to trade off. Their goal is to accumulate treasure by building relationships with other traders in port while using their guile to gather vital market information. The game takes place in four cycles - 4 years. Each year begins with teams trading and ends with returning to port to collect bounty on certain goods. As the game moves on, teams develop relationships with other teams and share gained knowledge.
A quick and clever activity where teams negotiate and trade to maximise their returns. Although this is a competitive exercise, the most successful teams are those that collaborate with others to build win-win outcomes, while at the same time focussing on their own bottom line results. Winning strategies are shared at the review process and pertinent learnings are applied to the workplace.
